Huddle Up With together PANGEA.
First of the month just came and went, meaning we'll probably be spending the next week taking quizzes on BuzzFeed and not much else.
After paying rent, that's probably a fate many of us can relate to.
Here's the thing, though: Turns out BuzzFeed quizzes are even more of a waste of time than you probably even realize. See, when Garbage rocker Shirley Manson took the “Which '90s Alt-Rock Grrrl Are You?” she didn't even get herself.
The point we're getting at is that it's probably worth your time to check those couch cushions for some loose change one more time just in case. There's just got to be better ways to spend your time.
And on the plus side, a few of tonight's offerings won't cost you a dime to attend.
Show Your Shorts at Texas Theatre
The first 10 directors to respond to an earlier Facebook call by the Texas Theatre earned themselves the privilege of having their movies screened at the theater tonight. Meaning? Well, not everything you see tonight will be amazing. But, hopefully, you'll catch at least a few gems as good as the ones we've happened upon during past SYS nights. — Jessica Petrocchi
Tuesday Night Trash: Run Run Shaw Tribute Night at Texas Theatre (Free)
Unlike the grab bag of user-submitted shorts that'll screen just before this month's TNT kicks off, we can say unequivocally beforehand that this movie will be bad. But, hey, that's kind of the point. The free screening will start with the showing of the trailer to every Shaw brothers kung-fu classic before devolving into a feature-length screening of Boxers Omen, which just might be the worst kung-fu flick ever committed to film. — Cory Graves
Rhett Miller, Salim Nourallah and Chris Johnson at The Live Oak
Is it just us, or does it seem like these intimate living room-style concerts that feature a trio of solo acoustic performances from well-known local frontmen are a bi-weekly thing these days? Anyway, this one features Old 97's pretty boy Rhett Miller, plus Salim Nourallah of The Travoltas and Chris Johnson of Telegraph Canyon. — CG
ArtLoveMagic Presents: SEVEN at Janette Kennedy Gallery (Free)
This month marks the seventh year since ArtLoveMagic began throwing art-related events and showcases for artists they deem under-recognized and/or under-appreciated. All month long, they'll be curating an exhibition at South Side on Lamar's Janette Kennedy Gallery that features over 100 of the artists that have participated in their shows previously. — CG
together PANGEA at Three Links
Hailing from the WAVVES school of acoustic-flavored '90s era alt-rock pastiche, LA trio together PANGEA are but a couple of days into a tour in support of their latest full-length, which was released just two weeks ago. Pair that with the fact that much of Badillac's lyrics are fueled by the breakup of a long-term relationship and that the band has quite the hard-partying reputation, and you can expect the outfit to fully embody that newly-single-and-ready-to-mingle attitude tonight — if only through the unfettered nature of their pop-laden rock tunes. — CG
Ghost The Musical at Fair Park Music Hall
Tonight kicks of the second — and final — week of stagings of the Broadway adaptation of the 1990 Patrick Swayze film of the same name. That said, how about a few quick Ghost: The Musical fun facts? OK! For one, the musical's songs were co-written by Dave “the other guy from Eurythmics” Stewart and Glen Ballard, who is also responsible for much of Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill. Also? In a year's worth of performances, they go through over 1,000 pounds of clay and 13,000 batteries. Crazy. — CG
Madison King at Twilite Lounge (Free)
Starting at 8 p.m., local country darling Madison King will be previewing the new full-length she plans on dropping this April — presumably while she's slinging drinks from behind the bar. After a few spins through the disc, King will then take the stage for a full band set. — CG
